Pet Policy

We know pets are great companions, so we adopted a policy to make it possible for residents to have their pets here with them, provided the residents meet the conditions set forth in the policy.
The objectives of the Immanuel Gardens Pet Policy are to:
• Provide a pleasant atmosphere for both pet owners and non-pet owners
• Make clear a pet owner’s responsibilities and limitations
• Be firm, fair and consistent

Management has the sole discretion for approval and disapproval of any pet.
The pet owner may be requested to provide management with proof of pet’s good health. Dogs and cats must have a license and a copy will be kept on file. Proof of spaying or neutering may also be required. Pets should have tags with the resident’s name and address or apartment number. Costs incurred for all damages caused by a pet will be charged to the resident.
A non-refundable pet deposit of $500 is required at the time of lease signing. Residents are fully responsible for all damage done by their pets, even if the damage exceeds the pet deposit.
